Paasche® provides the largest selection of airbrush models, industrial sprayers and support equipment worldwide. Using only the highest quality materials in combination with the tightest quality control, Paasche® products are unequalled by any other airbrush manufacturer in the world. Each unit is carefully assembled, individually inspected and finally tested in actual use by highly skilled craftsmen, in theUSA, to meet Paasche’s high standard of excellent performance.
1. Paasche Spray Head components are easily and quickly interchangeable for different coating materials.
2. Practically every Spray Gun can be fed by each of the following methods: Pressure, Gravity, Siphon
3. Metal Cup assemblies and pressure tanks are available with our without agitator.
4. Plastic gravity containers can be furnished for special applications.
Conventional spray guns use a compressor to atomize the coating (Paint). General rule of thumb is that this type of gun puts 1/3 of the coating on the substrate being coated and 2/3 into the air.
HVLP Spray Guns HVLP is a classification of guns created by the government to reduce the emissions created by traditional conventional spray equipment. The basic rule of thumb is this method puts 2/3 of the coating on the substrate and 1/3 in the air.
CONVENTIONAL SPRAY GUN
HVLP SPRAY GUN
|AIR PRESSURE: Uses high pressure to produce high volumes of paint.||AIR PRESSURE: Uses Low pressure to produce high volume of paint|
|OVERSPRAY: Uses high pressure resulting to more overspray||OVERSPRAY: Uses low pressure to reduce overspray.|
|TRANSFER EFFICIENCY: Conventional spray guns have a lower transfer efficiency rate and create more waste than HVLP spray guns, resulting in more wasted paint and higher clean-up costs.* According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), conventional spray guns produce a 40-percent transfer efficiency compared to up to 60 percent for properly-trained HVLP Operators||TRANSFER EFFICIENCY: HVLP guns have a higher transfer efficiency rate and create less waste than conventional guns, resulting in less wasted paint and lower clean-up costs.* According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), conventional spray guns produce a 40-percent transfer efficiency rating compared to up to 60 percent for properly-trained HVLP operators.|
|POLLUTION: Since conventional spray guns contain more over-spray, they release more VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the environment.||POLLUTION: An HVLP gun emits less “blowback” to the operator and releases less VOCs into the environment.|
|CLEAN-UPConventional paint sprayers’ overspray range is larger, which contributes to the additional time spent in cleanup.||CLEAN-UPHVLP paint sprayers are easier and faster to clean compared to conventional paint sprayers. Fewer procedures are needed to rid of the system of toxic chemicals.|
